The Almond carrier oil is cultivated, harvested and extracted from the USA (California) and Spain.

The carrier oil is 100% pure & natural. Meaning, the carrier oil comes from plants that are free from any kind of dilutions, chemicals or pesticides usage.

The extraction and harvesting methods focus on sustainability of the natural ecosystem, ensuring that the balance between human needs and nature’s bounty can coexist in harmony. We ensure that every carrier oil sent to our customers are in its purest and natural form.

Method of Extraction

The Almond carrier oil is extracted via the Expeller Pressed – Unrefined method.
The Expeller pressed extraction method consist of mechanically pressing the botanical material (Prunus Amygdalus) at high pressure to acquire the purest and maximum yield from the botanical material.

Expeller pressed oils maintain a high pressure during extraction which can cause the temperature to rise above 120 degrees. Once the temperature rises above 120 degrees, the extraction method is regarded as Expeller Pressed.

However, if the temperature is monitored and kept under 120 degrees, it is considered to be cold pressed. The carrier oil is Unrefined, therefore it has not been bleached or deodorized after extraction.

 Cemistry Testing

Using industry best practices, the Almond carrier oil is tested with a Gas Chromotographic Spectrometer to ensure that correct beneficial compounds are at the essential levels required for a true therapeutic effect. The carrier oils must go through a meticulous quality assurance test to ensure that the carrier oil has the right aroma, color and viscosity.

We only sell carrier oils when they have met the required purity levels for therapeutic use.
